Biography

William Charles Wakeford was born in 1854 at England. His parents were William Wakeford & Elizabeth (Verney) Wakeford.

William Charles Wakeford married Sarah Eleanor Hammond in 1877 at Murrurundi, New South Wales, Australia. [1]

William Charles Wakeford age 78 died on 18 January 1932 at West Brunswick, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. [2]

"EPITOME OF NEWS." The Armidale Express and New England General Advertiser (NSW : 1856 - 1861; 1863 - 1889; 1891 - 1954) 12 January 1877
The ' Mur. Times' says :—A wedding that drew more than the usual number of friends and spectators together, took place at St. Paul's Church, Murrurundi, on Thursday last, when the Rev. J. Ross, M.A., united in "the holy bonds of matrimony" Mr. William Wakeford, the eldest son of Mr. Wakeford, the contractor for the railway extension, and Miss Hammond, of Werris Creek, Liverpool Plains.
Great interest was evinced in the event, particularly by the lady portion of the community, which was not diminished by the fact of there being eight bridesmaids and the same number of groomsmen. Mr. Schofield, the organist at St. Paul's, treated the company to " Mendelssohn's Wedding March" while the register was being signed, after which the " Joy Bells" announced the completion of the ceremony.
The happy couple left for Sydney by the afternoon train, with the best wishes of all who were in any way acquainted with them.

"Family Notices" The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) 20 January 1932
WAKEFORD — January 18 at his daughter's (Mrs. Moles) residence, Avalon, Culloden-street, West Brunswick, Melbourne; dearly loved husband of S. E. Wakeford, father of William, Charlie, Cyril, and Muriel, aged 78. At rest.
